ASTM A182 Type 316 Angles is molybdenum-alloyed steel and is the second most common austenite stainless steel (after grade 304). The molybdenum gives better overall corrosion resistant properties than Grade 304, particularly higher resistance to pitting and crevice corrosion in chloride environments. SS 316 Angles is a group of austenitic stainless steels with superior corrosion resistance to 304 stainless steel. The higher nickel and molybdenum content in ASME SA 182 Type 316 Angles allows it to demonstrate better overall corrosion resistant properties than 304, especially with regard to pitting and crevice corrosion in chloride environments. Buy 316 SS Angles at very competitive price from us. The resultant composition gives these Angles much improved corrosion resistance in many aggressive environments. The austenitic structure of AISI 316 SS grade allows excellent toughness, even down to cryogenic temperatures.
316 SS Angles also offer higher creep, stress-to-rupture and tensile strength at elevated temperatures, excellent corrosion resistance and strength properties, and they are well suited for fabricated or formed applications. SS UNS S31600 Angles has fabrication characteristics similar to Types 302 and 304. The lower rate of general corrosion in mildly corrosive environments gives Stainless Steel DIN 1.4401 Angles good atmospheric corrosion resistance in polluted marine atmospheres. Typical industrial sectors of these AISI Angles are: Brewing, Chemical Industry, Dairy, Food processing, Marine equipment, Petrochemicals, Pharmaceuticals and more. SS DIN 1.4401 Angles is also extensively used in the oil and gas and chemical industries for its cost effective corrosion resistance and ease of fabrication. Corrosion resistance of 316 SS is improved, particularly against sulfuric, hydrochloric, acetic, formic and tartaric acids; acid sulfates and alkaline chlorides. Grade 316 Angles will resist scaling at temperatures up to 1600 Degree F (871 Degree C) and maintains good mechanical properties and cr eep strength at high temperatures.
The fact that Grade 316 SS Angles is negligibly responsive to magnetic fields means that it can be used in applications where a non-magnetic metal is required. In addition to molybdenum, it also contain a number of other elements in varying concentrations & has excellent forming and welding characteristics. AISI Type 316 SS Angles is suitable for welding because it has carbon content lower than 301 to 303 series alloys to avoid carbide precipitation in welding applications.
